"is" and " are" can be deleted?

The site is divided into three sections ,each featuring the role of derivatives as told through stories ,interactiv infographics ,vedios and quizzes.

this is passive expression.

"each featuring the role of derivatives as is told through stories"

"each featuring the role of derivatives as are told through stories"

if there is "is" or "are" in sentence, can it be deleted?

Update:

"each featuring the role of derivatives as told through stories "

I think there is a "is" before "as", and is it correct to delete it?

    Yes,it can be omitted because the helping verb "be" can be omitted in as clause.

    As (is) said before, the policeman is very rude

    told is a past participle and when combined with "to be", effectively acts as an adjective. The story is told, the told story. You do not need to employ the "to be" verb form in this situation.

    Passive voice and adjective participles are a zone of overlap. A lot of what is "passive voice" is truly just the use of a participle as an adjective. That is, in effect, how passive voice works.

    Do not use "is" or "are." The passive is clearly indicated with the use of the past participle.

    You are in the wrong class. You need to start with beginner's English/American. 'interactiv' and 'vedios' are not words in either language.

    But in answer to your question, 'is' and 'are' are redundant and the phrase is better without them.

    Don't know what you mean but 'is' means singular and 'are' means plural
